Excellent day out, great to meet and touch the owls. The falcon display was fantastic. The guys really knew their stuff answered every question. Bought through Wowcher and worth every penny. Thanks to Zach and D you do a great job.

We booked the evening with owls through Groupon and found it to be fantastic! Very informative, you get to fly a wide variety of owls and the price was very reasonable. Would highly recommend!

We had a great day out looking at the wildlife and animal wood sculptures. The play area had the usual bits including some accessible equipment. Parking was £1.
